Hi Tim,

Due tomorrow - yikes!!!  I can't give you an easy answer, it
depends on a lot of things. Where is your mold growing? 
What is it growing on?  If it is too cold, too wet, or has 
too much light it won't grow very well.

The fastest way that I've found to grow mold is....moisten 
a piece of bread, put some dust on it, put it in a shoebox 
and keep it in a warm place for a few days.

Hope things work out with your project.  If you really need 
to get your hands on some mold fast, go to the grocery store 
and buy some blue cheese (that's even edible mold).

If you do end up growing mold, send a picture of it and I'll 
include it in Thinking Fountain.

Good Luck, if you have any other questions, just let me know.
